Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50K Digital Camera ?

Have a Panasonic FZ50. Puchased a Tokina 3x Telephoto today. Screwed the Telephoto on with the correct adapter ring.Changed the Menu setting to Tele. Go to take a Photo and i can only get the conversion icon to stop blinking red to white at full zoom? Can i still take quality shots at different focal lengths with the blinking red icon in the view finder or at only full zoom.What have i missed? Thanks!


Answers :

Most add on lenses are designed to be used at a certain focal length, a zoom should be used (is most effective) when you are completely zoomed out, (really why would you add a zoom lens then not zoom all the way) a wide angle lens should be used with the zoom all the way in (cause your getting the widest angles). As far as quality, you really shouldn't have an issue except you may get black edges depending on how big the end of your lens is. Good luck

The camrea turns on but will not take a picture. the card is not full. you can use all the buttons when you first turn it on but then when you try to take a picture it will not take one and then you can not use the buttons anymore. If I shut the camera off and turn it back on I can use the menu buttons again. When I turn on the camera the red button by the view finder blinks three times.

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??


The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is....

The next problem I'm having at the same events is red eye and or white eye. I know how to change the red eye option however it doesn't stop it from happening and even if I


I imagine your son's wrestling events are held in school gyms with lighting that is less than ideal. If you are taking pictures without a flash then the blurriness you describe could well be due to a slow shutter speed. Your camera is using a slowe ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?
